President signs off on new pension system for soldiers, policemen


President Bronislaw Komorowski on 6 June signed into law a reform of the pension system of the uniformed forces. It is part of the government’s pension reform package whose central element, an increase in the statutory retirement age, was approved by the President five days earlier.

The legislation establishes new pension regulations for soldiers and members of 10 other forces (including the police, the intelligence agencies, the Border Guard or the Prison Service, among others) who enter into service on 1 January 2013 that will have the effect of extending their working lives compared with older colleagues. It increases the mandatory working period by 10 years from 15 years to 25 years, and for the first time sets a minimum retirement age of 55 years.
